Thank you for the reply. Unfortunately this type of information is way above my level of knowledge and understanding. I need to know the actual mechanics of processing the patch information - do I print off the file then somehow measure the patch colours on a scanner or by eye and then make adjustments within PS...or what? I'm afraid you guys are dealing with a total novice here!
If you want a simple solution, use the white to WB the image. I have no personal knowledge of the Kodak control patches, but I'd guess that you need to obtain hard copy of the patch strip to compare your prints against.
Or this link appears to give the LAB value for the various colours
By putting the image in LAB mode, and hovering the Eye dropper over the swatches, you'll be able to see their values in the Info panel. But that is only half the story because having the right hues on the screen is not the same as getting them onto your print. If you have a trusted profile to go with your intended media, then I guess you have a decent chance. Do you have time to post a small print back to the person who took the picture? You really need someone with a lot more experience than myself to guide you I am afraid. Jeff Schewe is the best person I can think of regards printing, and who posts to this forum. You could try him with a PM, or contact him through his website http://forums.adobe.com/people/Jeff%20Schewe (and yes, this is the same Jeff Schewe who writes the books.)
